27 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Kramnik, Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and of course Carlsen. Least favorite: anyone who acts like a classless jerk, meaning Topalov, Mamedyarov, and Nakamura. Also, Leko, who really should be a checkers (or tic-tac-toe) player.

dumbgai: I do know the UAE is a country that arrests rape victims for adultery.

dumbgai: <I can't believe the stupid chess establishment never gave JP a crack at the world championship.> That's silly. You don't just hand someone a world championship match, they have to qualify (well, I guess the case of Kramnik was debatable).

dumbgai: Every Olympiad, there seems to be a big tie near the top and the silver and bronze medals are determined by tiebreaks. While this might seem a bit unfair, it also indicates that the strong teams are pretty evenly matched, which makes the entire competition exciting to follow.

dumbgai: 9.5/11 (+8 =3 -0) with a 2912 performance rating at the Olympiad, individual gold medal on board 3, team gold medal, and gaining 32 rating points to reach 2700. All around, an amazing performance in every way.

dumbgai: Black's setup looks like a pretty standard QID to me. Nbd7 and immediately Nb8 though...??
   Aug-12-14 Chess Olympiad (Women) (2014) (replies)
dumbgai: Note that Germany can also tie for first if they win, Russia loses, and Ukraine and China tie. But their tiebreak is too weak to win gold, regardless of the actual scores in the final round.

dumbgai: I wish ChessBase would get a better commentator for its articles. There are some really cringe-worthy comments in his Olympiad reports.

dumbgai: I don't know much about Maurice Ashley, but he doesn't deserve to be called something like that if his only crime is prize money distribution. You might disagree with him, but that doesn't make him a bad guy. As for college grad/Kamsky, I think <vkk> is pointing out that ...
